Austin Flooring Tile
Of all the flooring options available for bathrooms, most homeowners tend to choose tile. Wood floors and carpet have trouble dealing with water. Linoleum and vinyl floors often lack the same kind of elegance as tile. Plus, tile will last over the long haul. Periodically cleaning and occasionally replacing the grout should be the only big things involved in maintaining your tile. Should the unexpected happen, though, it's a good idea to buy a few extra tiles. If you have replacement tiles, a repair job shouldn't be a problem.
Bathroom remodels are one of the best ways to both improve the value of your home and improve the day-to-day quality of your home life. One of the key components of a bathroom remodel is upgrading your floor. Whether it's time to have your old tile replaced or you finally get to rip out that ugly linoleum floor, new tile in an Austin bathroom is going to make a dramatic difference. It'll look exponentially better and feel more like a bathroom floor should when you step out of the shower.
Flooring Tile Treatments
To get the most from your new floor, you want to take your time picking your tile. By using different colored tiles, you can create a nice border. This border tile can also compliment color schemes going on elsewhere in your bathroom. Contrasting grout can also be a great way spruce up for floor tiles. Don't be afraid to get creative, and don't be afraid of color. The size of your tile will also have a big impact on the look of your bathroom. If you're considering using the same style tile for your flooring and walls, you'll probably want to use different-sized tiling to create diversified textures.
Cost of Tile Installation
HomeAdvisor tracks each project we process to provide homeowners with valuable information about their upcoming home improvement projects. The national average for the cost of a tile installation is about $1,800 for ceramic or porcelain tile and $1,900 for natural stone tile, such as granite, marble, etc. You may have heard that natural stone is more expensive than ceramic, but much of this extra cost can be eliminated by cost-saving choices. On average, stone tile will cost more, but you can get a less expensive stone tile for as little as $7-$10 per sq. ft. while a more expensive ceramic version will cost up to $15 per sq. ft.
Our Austin flooring tile projects show an even more complete picture than this. We commonly see Austin bathroom tile projects come in at or under $1,000. On occasion, we also see projects range all the way up to $5,000 or more. These projects, though, are more likely Austin kitchen flooring tile projects. These numbers also help you see the bids that are likely to come in for smaller and larger bathroom floors.
Another reason why natural stone tends to be a little more expensive is that the extra weight tends to make the installation a little more difficult. Ceramic and porcelain tile projects tend to stay under a week in project length, while natural stone projects tend to be right at one week. Actual time of installation may not be that long and we see Austin bathroom tile projects that get done in one or two days. Perhaps the biggest piece of advice we can offer is to talk to an Austin flooring tile contractor first. By avoiding big chains, you'll probably end up saving quite a bit of money on your project. Don't believe us? Listen to what one Austin homeowner said who managed to get a natural stone tile installation for only $900: "Shop around for your product but go through an actual installer and not a large company like Home Depot or Lowe's. Although these companies are wonderful, the cost of installing is outrageous compared to going through the installers themselves."
